Madagascar: 10 deaths from sea turtle meat

Continuing with the French imperialism theme, after returning from fishing, villagers in the fokontany of Ambavarano, Mahavanona commune in Ansirtanana II shared sea turtle meat

Immediately after the meal, the first symptoms of food poisoning appeared. They did not stop vomiting and were later evacuated to the hospital.

And despite the intensive care that was provided to the sick, 10 people, including a one-year-old, baby, did not survive. According to the explanations, sea turtles were unfit for consumption.

Currently three other villagers are still receiving treatment at the hospital. Local officials conducted a public awareness campaign to prevent the incident from recurring.
